    Default Dick Winters, 'Band Of Brothers' Inspiration, Dies

    Dick Winters passed away. I don't usually admire military men, but his self-sacrifice and devotion to his men were really inspiring.

    Portraying Winters, actor Damian Lewis says, "If somehow I manage to get home again, I promised God and myself that I would find a quiet piece of land someplace and spend the rest of my life in peace."

    Winters found that quiet piece of land. He bought a farm outside Hershey, Pa., where he spent the rest of his life.
    Take the weakest thing in you
    And then beat the bastards with it
    And always hold on when you get love
    So you can let go when you give it

    If this man's nickname wasn't Chilly Dick, I am very disappointed in his friends.
